Hot Rueben Sandwich

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;
17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,
18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
19 and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel,
20 for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak. - Ephesians 6:10-20

This makes 4-6 sandwiches according to how much you meat stack.

Honey Wheat or marbled Pumpernickel 
Clarified butter for toasting on griddle

1/4 lb. shaved Pastrami, Boar's Head
1/4 lb. shaved Top Round Beef, Boar's Head
1/4 c drained shredded German Kraut
1/2 of a Onion, Sautéed in 1 t clarified butter
Swiss or Trader Joe's Unexpected Cheddar

Bread and Butter Pickles or Kosher Dill slices
Russian or Thousand Island dressing (Russian is better)

In a non stick skillet, heat butter.
Add onions and cook until tender.
Add a little clarified butter to griddle and heat. 
Add bread to butter and swish around.
Add shaved meat to skillet and heat just through, then add crumbed cheese.
Cut off skillet and let cheese melt.
When bread is toasted, remove from griddle to a plate.
Add the meat/cheese/onion mixture onto bread allowing the same amount for each one.
Drizzle Russian dressing over meat and top with pickle.
So much better than the cold meat one!!

Limoncello Pork Belly and Cabbage Carbonara

11 But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.
12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called and about which you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
13 I charge you in the presence of God, who gives life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who in his testimony before Pontius Pilate made the good confession,
14 to keep the commandment unstained and free from reproach until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 which he will display at the proper time-he who is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings and Lord of lords,
16 who alone has immortality, who dwells in unapproachable light, whom no one has ever seen or can see. To him be honor and eternal dominion. Amen.
17 As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.
18 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share,
19 thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.
20 O Timothy, guard the deposit entrusted to you. Avoid the irreverent babble and contradictions of what is falsely called "knowledge,"
21 for by professing it some have swerved from the faith. Grace be with you.  - 1 Timothy 6:11-21
